The yew grows close to the perimeter wall, and from the street appears to be solid. On the side facing the church it is completely hollow. It appears to have been truncated at a height of about 20′, but now has many thick branches from either side of the hollow rising well above this height. Its interior is cavernous and sculptured sapwood rises to a great height. The tree swell considerably, but it was not possible to get a measurement at 3′. Girth was 21′ 8” (660cm) between the ground and 1′.
